World Vision Malawi (WVM) says it has invested K14.2 million in training 59 caregivers as part of its commitment to promote early childhood development (ECD) in Mzimba and Karonga districts.
Speaking during a graduation of the caregivers on Friday, Mzimba WVM district manager Elarton Thawani said the institution wants all children to be educated for life.
He said the organisation is committed to ensuring that children get educated and that the process starts at a tender age; hence, its involvement in training caregivers.
“We are here to fulfil the ECD Policy of Ministry of Gender, Children, Disability and Social Welfare which aims at promoting holistic service delivery to all children from conception to the first eight years which are critical for human development.
“This involves provision of quality early survival, growth, protection, development, stimulating and learning services. That is why we are here today,” said Thawani.
M’mbelwa District Council director of administration (North) Tamara Nyirongo commended WVM for complementing government’s efforts in promoting ECD.
